Get the map here! (Link)
Just throw this into your 'UnrealTournament/Maps' directory and you should be good to go!
Note: to get this going as co-op, so you can respawn if you die, type this in console:
EDIT: It turns out this didn't work initially, just entering the map+game type. BUT:
If you: Start a new game -> Set to EXU 2 BI 6.0.0 -> Select 'Co-op' -> on any map, press 'Start' -> and THEN enter the following in console:
You'll be able to respawn. Trust me, it's maybe a little annoying but it's worth it!
This is a map I had made quite a while ago. My interest in EXU2 was recently rekindled when I got a college friend of mine back into the game, and then this mod. When I brought up this map to play last night in some coop, it was in a state far less complete than now - after all, it was made well before v. 6.0.0!
I touched it up, adding new features, play tested it for an hour with her, then touched it up some more and what I was left with was a neat, perhaps casual little arena where you can play with your fair share of flares, weaponry and even the blast bapes from dispensers (they look like wall dispensers, or open crates). And, of course, the SK6 artillery cannon is included, you just have to grab it and survive .
The map is pretty sparse and favors gameplay over looks. The interesting feature is you can choose a playstyle: run around and frag till you die, or camp in one of four corners that have their own features. The corners have doors that you can toggle to buy yourself some precious time, if you're low on health/armor/ammo.
Otherwise, I'm not sure to what extent this can be considered a "co-op" map, since there really is no objective. As the name may suggest, the only "goal" is to try and get the rather bland, pristine-looking map as stained with blood/gibs as you can. If anything it's really a sandbox where I got to use a bunch of the new features, like item dispensers and the AdvancedCreatureSpawner, among others. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed playing/making it, and once the next version of EXU2 drops I'll definitely consider buffing this (or a similar map) up to have those awesome cannons
